The first thing to say about this hotel is that it used to be called the RobertRamon, and on all our documents and a very recent email from the hotel, that is the only name used. It was, therefore, a little difficult locating the hotel now known as the Cornelisz! The name change should have been made clear much sooner.
The location of the hotel is superb. It is very close to the Rijks and Van Gogh museums, to the lovely Vondelpark and to lots of very good restaurants. The 197 bus from the airport stops about four minutes walk from the hotel. There are lots of very interesting routes to walk right into the heart of Amsterdam – however, all the streets in this part of Amsterdam are worth exploring!
All the staff in the hotel we found to be very helpful and very friendly (they are, after all, Dutch!). The breakfast was reasonable value and it did save time for sight-seeing to eat this meal at the hotel. We had two room; both were small, rather dark but adequate. There is little point in visiting Amsterdam if you want to spend much time in the bedroom. A fan was provided in both rooms which cooled the rooms on the one occasion when the temperature rose above cool.
There is certainly a problem with the drains in the toilet/bathroom. If the wash-basin was full or the taps were turned full on, water came up through the drain in the floor. The maintenance person couldn’t find a problem with the system and we managed to avoid getting our wet feet by controlling how much water went into the wash-basin.
This is an expensive part of Amsterdam and therefore I would rate this place as offering good value for money; but there are plenty of alternatives and on our next visit we will probably look at all the options. I have given a four star which I think is probably a little generous!
